Product Info

The GNU Rider's Choice ASS C2 PBTX Snowboard uses asymmetry to better enhance your body's natural turning mechanics, with a deeper sidecut on the heelside for improved and simplified turn initiation. The core uses FCS Certified wood in three strategic locations to soften harsh landings, increase ollie power and improve strength without adding weight. Lucky for you the GNU Rider's Choice ASS C2 PBTX Snowboard was made with Eco-Unreal Construction - meaning that even the top sheet and base material were constructed without harsh toxins or chemicals. Ride whatever the weather throws your way on the GNU Rider's Choice ASS C2 PBTX Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

C2 BTXSolid tip and tail pressured camber for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability is combined with a medium amount of rocker between your feet for float, carving and edge hold.


Flex Rating: 5.5 - 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A medium to medium-stiff flex ideal for a wide variety of conditions, from groomed runs to powder.


A.S.S. Pickle TechnologyAsymmetric Symmetric Synchronization uses asymmetry in the board's sidecut (deeper heelside sidecut), wood core components (asymmetric wood lamination for softer heelside flex), contact angles (power serration on heelside and fine serration on toeside, short heelside edge contact and longer toeside contact) and tip and tail design to make riding a whole lot easier. The board harmonizes with your bodies natural asymmetry and the unique toeside and heelside snowboard activation mechanics.


FSC Certified Wood CoresFSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

Asym Eco-UnrealA strong, powerful, and durable Aspen spine has playful and snappy Poplar on the toeside and regenerative, lightweight, vibration reducing Paulownia at the heelside edge.


Bi ax / Tri axThis is a glass and fiber reinforcement combination to give the snowboard a long life and plenty of pop.


UHMW Sintered SidewallsUltra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.

Birch Power Transfer Internal SidewallsThese sidewalls transfer energy to the edges more rapidly. Aiming to give you unmatched control, pop, precision, and response.

UHMW Tip and Tail Impact Protection


Sintered BaseThis base material was made through an environmentally-friendly process without the use of toxic solvents or curtain coats. Compression hardened amorphous UHMW creates the toughest, fastest best wax holding base material around. For best results, wax regularly.

Magne-Traction®Strategically located serrations on your edges that create confidence-building, fatigue-reducing, edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and ice.


Eco-Sublimation PBT TopsheetThis is a unique water-based graphic process that uses no toxic solvents or curtain coats in the manufacturing process. In exchange, you have a durable, classy looking top sheet that was made environmentally-friendly.
